The launch of Massively Parallel Technologies’ new Blue Cheetah cloud environment came with a pleasant surprise this week: a video interview with Gene Amdahl, the man who came up with Amdahl’s Law.

Mr. Amdahl, now in his nineties, had this to say about Amdahl’s Law:

“It’s an interesting guidepost. From it you can determine what you should or should not do in order to get parallelism to be effective.”

In his current role on the Board of Advisors for Massively Parallel, Amdahl goes on to say that the company’s technology will revolutionize the world of computing.
